    Word97 Includetext field and Bookmarked text

    Unless I've missed it in my search, there's no EASY way in Word97 to generate an {IncludeText} with the file and bookmark.



    I'm composing a target document that needs chunks of text from several other source documents. Each of those source documents has bookmarked text. Everything is in place. In my target document I have the headings ready, and now .....


    I want to select my text location, immediately after a heading, and then browse the hard drive until I locate a source file, and then browse the bookmarks within that file until I get a thumbnail skecth of the appropriate text so I can exclaim "THAT'S what I want!", click "OK" and have the {Includetext sourcefile bookmark} dropped in place.

    I think it can't be done in Word97 (without a user macro).

    Can it be done in Office2000? XP?

    Hi Chris,

    Can't be done in Word 2000 (or 97) so far as I know. Very annoying! If you know the name of the bookmark you can do it, otherwise you have to edit the field after you add the file.

    I realized later that just about everything was in place in <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.vif.com/users/cgreaves/Customizer.htm>Customizer</A>, a utility I wrote for producing training manuals. So I added a "Thumbnail" command button which does the trick.

    I might try to find a less cumbersome way of doing it, but at least it works for now.
